Priscilla Doggett was born about 1779 in Lancaster, VA. Her parents were Coleman Doggett and Mary King and she was one of six siblings. Coleman and Mary are listed as Revolutionary War Patriots for providing supplies to the army. Coleman was the great grandson of Benjamin Doggett who came to Lancaster before 1669 as a clergyman to Christ Church and later founded St. Mary's White Chapel. When her father died in 1782 Priscilla inherited three slaves, four cows, two calves, one colt and a cart.

Priscilla married Thomas Kent on April 16th, 1795 in Lancaster county. Little is known about Thomas' background other than he was a mariner. Similarly little is known about their life after marriage. They had four daughters.

Thomas died about 1844. Priscilla died soon after her husband. Her will was written in Lancaster County in February of 1844 and signed by her with an X. The will was proven in May of that same year. Priscilla named her daughter Elizabeth Payne and grandson Lemuel Uno Short as the main inheritors. She also listed other daughters; Ann Clark, Catherine Hinton and Priscilla Brown.
